The flag is shown against the blue sky. The yellow field and red symbol colors are the colors of Spain. There is a red sun with rays stretching out from it. There are four groups of rays with four rays in each group. This is an ancient sun symbol of a Native American people called the Zia. They believed the giver of all good gave gifts in groups of four. The gifts are: the four directions - north, east, south and west. Two: the four seasons - spring, summer, fall and winter. Three: the day - sunrise, noon, evening and night. Four: life itself - childhood, youth, middle years and old age. Five: all of these are bound by a circle of life and love, without a beginning or end.
